as republicans newfound religion, i'm giving them props, this is not new for them either. john mccain, before he was against the dream act was a co author, a co sponsor of the dream act. it was all about politics. i would agree with anna, timing is everything, and now after they got their butt kicked they want to follow through on what they started years and years ago. unfortunately, the latino population has been a pawn in the political game. if you want to be here, you're a part of the game. >> speaking of the gop. i want you to listen to bobby jindal, he's talking to his fellow republicans. >> we must not be the party that protects the well off so they can keep their toys. we have to stop being the stupid party. i'm serious, it's time for a new republican party that talks like adults. >> he's not the only one giving that sentiment, paul ryan gave a similar sentiment this morning on meet the press. is this what your party needs, tough love? >> yes, we need to not sugar coat it, we need to learn the lessons of the last election, i think governor jindal is correct, i think paul ryan is right, i
as republicans new found religion, this is not new props. he was a co-author of the dream act. it was all about politics. i will agree with ana, timing 1 everything. after they got their butt kicked they want to follow through. it has been a pawn in the big political gain. this is with what it means to be an american. you're part of the game. >> okay. speaking of the gop, i want you to listen to bobby jindal. >> we must not be the party that protects the well off so they can keep their toys. we just reject identity politics. we have to stop being the stupid party. i'm serious. it's time for a new republican party that talks likes adults. >> he's not the only one giving that sentiment. paul ryan gave a similar one on "meet the press". is this what your part needs, tough love? >> yes. we need to not sugar coat itment we need to learn the lessons. i think paul ryan is right. i was at the republican retreat of the house members. i'll tell you, we heard a lot of this. there is an acknowledgment within the republican party we have to reboot. look, the best part that happened out of this election is t
tradition kept alive in the vatican walls and it has turned this faith into a third world religion. do you see any connection between a vow of celibacy, put in place in 1100 ad so priests could not leave wealth to their kids, in this unhealthy behavior that we don't see manifested in religious that don't have this celabicy rule. >> you're right. the problems with the celibacy rule many believe that the sexually troubled catholic teens and young men who have bizarre scary, sexual urges they believe that celibacy is a gift from god and if they pledge themselves to a life to god and in church they will be suppressed of these urges. that's are a nice hope but the practical reality is that many instances the reverse plays out. when you restrict your pool of potential ministers to only men who have promised to be celibate you're bound to attract less than healthy individuals and you're going to create situations in which many, many men, if no one can have sex of any sort, then many men will have a sexual secret. and if you have a sexual secret you're not going to rat out priests who are abusing

. but they are, they separate their politics from their religion. and you really see ton the streetsment i men in many neighborhoods, and certainly in tel aviv people dress just as they do in the states. but there are a lot of neighborhoods and especially up here in jerusalem you see the orthodox everywhere and men in their black hats and curls behind their ears and the women whose hair really is as covered as women in many muslim countries. and so there is a lot of resentment, especially among secular israelis about the special privileges that the orthodox and the settler movement get. everything from greater public spending, to the fact that the ultraorthodox with their young people say they are studying the torah are exempted from compulsory national military service that every other young israeli, male or female has to serve. and that is really you know, the most striking divide that i see here in israel. >> brown: so margaret, give us a flavor for what is coming next week. what are you reporting on. >> warner: jeff, we came here to look at the three big issues that newly elected president

protects the people's rights of freedom of speech, freedom of press, free exercise of religion, free trade agreement of association and all other such rights of the people. my second amendment advances the fundamental principle of political equality for all by empowering congress and the states the right to regulate political spending. it will allow congress to pass campaign finance reform legislation that will withstand constitutional challenges. mr. speaker, we need to empower people, not corporations or big money special interests. our current system has been corrupted. it undermines the rights of ordinary citizens. it undermines our democracy. surely this is not the system our founders envisioned. the preamble to the constitution is we the people. let us hope that this congress doesn't forget that. i ask my colleagues to join me in supporting these important bills to reform our campaign finance laws and assure that corporate rights do not trumps people's rights. thank you. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. t
that differentiate us, make us unique, whether it be gender or race or religion, all of these things fall aside when you're there putting the mission first and selflessly serving as that member of a team. i can tell you from my own fi t firsthand experience as well as the many, many people i've had the honor of serving with, whether in training or in a deployed setting, those things are not what's crossing your mind when you're operating. >> should there be jobs that are not open to women? i mean are there some positions that really women cannot do? >> i don't think so. i think that really you have to look at what are the qualifications, what are the standards necessary for a specific job that are already in place and opening those doors to anyone who has volunteered to serve our country, if they meet those standards, that should be the setting. i think we've heard from john mccain, for example. his concern about making sure that the high physical fitness standards are kept, and i agree. i think in some of these jobs that do require a great amount of physical fitness, those standards should not be
to the lds church and what challenges it poses when they are picking a college. we knew his religion was extremely important to him. he seemed like a very nice guy, like a very thoughtful guy. that continued through college and i followed this story as well and was at the heisman ceremony when he was talking about this stuff when apparently he had already been told it was a hoax. it's just really weird and raises a lot of questions. >> manti te'o, gail, released some of the voice mails that he said came from this person that he believed to be lennay, the girlfriend online. let me play a clip. >> hi, i'm just telling you know i got here and i'm getting ready for my first session and just want to call you to keep you posted. i miss you. i love you. bye. babe, i'm just calling to say good night. i love you. i know that you're probably doing homework or you're with the boys or i want to say i love you and good night. i'll be okay tonight. i'll do my best. yeah. so get your rest and i'll talk to you tomorrow. i love you so much, hun. sweet dreams. i don't know who answered your phone and
things that differentiate us and make us unique whether gender or race or religion, all of these things fall aside when you are there putting the mission first and selflessly serving as that member of a team. i can tell you from my my first hand experience that whether in training or deployed setting those things are not what's crossing your mind when you are operating. >> but make no mistake when she talked about gender there, what women will have to do to join these front line units is pass the same standards of physical fitness, scholastic, it will all have to be the same as the men. this will be gender neutral. >> do we know how quickly this will happen? >> the pentagon says they want to have an implementation process and get it done by 2016. there is still a big outclause on all of this. the services, military units could say at the end of the day they want an exemption and they don't think they can have women in the units. you hear the same issues, personal hygiene, can women pass the physical requirements, all of this still on the table. so panetta knows and chuck hagel was suppo
going on where people who had taken on certain religions were not voting. i saw the felonies that people wanted to change in the community. as far as supporting him in those areas of his new agenda, you have to understand that he had four years to clean up america and he has done a wonderful job. he pulled together a campaign and put diversity all over. we have to stop looking at presidential issues and look at what is at hand. we need to stop hiding behind a wall and congress should helpless do that, not fair to the people, the children that were killed. who is going to work? who is going to take on the new america if there are no people to take it on? thank you for allowing me to have my opinion. i truly feel that american citizens that lived and died for us, thank you to them for allowing us to have this conversation. >> the eugene robinson -- host: the eugene robinson piece this morning, "no longer the black president." "the verdict of his presidency will depend on what he accomplishes in his second term." host: that is the piece from eugene robinson, "no longer the black president."
constrained because of religion to talk to my male counterparts, and were more open to talking to me because i was a women. when one of the. goals is to win the hearts and minds, being able to communicate with the local population is critical and i have seen reports of engagement with local children and women in a way that must be much more difficult for men to do, and of course as medics serving fellow soldiers. host: the last caller run-up israeli women who served in combat in the israeli army. we want to show our viewers a list of countries allowing women in close combat roles including -- for the sake of this discussion, defying what is combat -- define what is combat. guest: the regulation was written in 1994, and according to that women were to be banned from ground combat, which was defined as engaging the enemy on the ground while being exposed to hostile fire and a high probability of direct physical conflict. it would take place on the battlefield. interestingly enough, as engagid regulation that was just rescinded -- the army regulation was different and banned women from code locat
we worship a real god and they worship the false god. never mind the fact that both religions agree it is the same god. here's jerry boykin on fox news on sunday. >> mixing the genders in those combat units where there is no privacy, where they're out on extended operations and there's no opportunity for people to have any privacy whatsoever. i certainly don't want to be in that environment with a female because it's degrading and human igiating enough to have -- humiliating enough to do your personal hygiene and the normal functions among your teammates. >> john: eric, is he saying we can send them to kill people and be killed and be shot at but it must be degrading if someone sees my wee-wee? >> yeah. the idea that this hasn't been discussed within the pentagon for at least a decade. hasn't been signed off by all of the senior officials and things like that. i mean what do these people think? obama called up the generals and said make this happen? for someone like boykin who's been in the military to pretend he has no idea, you know, how decisions are made in the military, it is k
and hijacking of an old and honored religion and what we need to do is find a way -- and this is something we have to work at -- for people to understand the degree to which that is happening and becoming in some places an excuse for their disenfranchisement, of being deprived of good can governance, jobs, opportunity and one of our missions is to not let that be an excuse. so i think that carrying the banner of religious tolerance, of diversity and pluralism is critical. we have raised that with president morsi. i think i was the first american to meet with the president before he even knew he was a candidate. and we talked about the need for the brotherhood to be able to respect the diversity of egypt. now that hasn't happened completely as we would like in the constitutional process. but as i said, that's an ongoing process and we need to work together to try to do it. but senator, you raise a central, central issue with respect to what is happening to the politics of certain regions of the world. and it's got to be front and center in our dialogue. >> thank you. >> senator corker, final c
